Bereavement Counselling is offered free of charge to our patients and their families by Christine Murphy

I was born and raised in Switzerland I had a keen interest in everything 'spiritual' from a very early age. It was after completing an apprenticeship in book selling and emigrating to New Zealand that I discovered in Buddhism the fitting expression of my personal spirituality. Questions about life, death and the universe and the connection between them have always been part of my journey.

By studying counselling (I finished my diploma in 2006 and gained full membership of NZAC in 2008) I found a way of turning my dream of wanting to help people help themselves into reality. Having been involved with Amitabha Hospice for many years, initially as volunteer, later on as volunteers coordinator and counsellor I have witnessed countless times how the prospect of an imminent death is causing people to go through a deep spiritual crisis. Therefore I jumped at the opportunity to be able to help develop a service to support the dying through this often very difficult and painful process.

To maintain highest standard in my work I am dedicated to ongoing professional development and supervision.
